Shoalhaven City Council has been preparing a draft Bomaderry/Nowra Regional Sports & Community Precinct Master Plan for Artie Smith Oval and Bomaderry Sporting Complex. The draft Master Plan seeks to establish a Regional Sport and Community Precinct at the Artie Smith Oval and Bomaderry Sporting Complex, both located within Bomaderry, to deliver high quality sporting facilities together with infrastructure to support local, regional and state level sport as well as the surrounding local community needs. This is a Plan for the next 30 years, intending to meet the needs of a growing community now and into the future. As a result, the development will be broken into key stages, which are outlined below:
1. Establish Site
2. Community Pavilion
3. Athletics Facility/ Pavilion
4. Rugby League Facilities & Pavilion
5. AFL/ Cricket Facilities & Pavilion
Purpose of the Project
The development aims to cater for junior and senior sport, provide quality training facilities, provides a venue for elite sporting events at state and regional level. The supporting infrastructure includes a community pavilion providing support services that have the potential to provide aquatic, medical, physiotherapy, rehabilitation health, wellness and fitness services. The facilities would provide for a 7 day a week operation and establish a Community Meeting place including a café/bistro, child minding, meeting place and opportunities for learning and education. The venue also has the capacity to offer a range of community programs which address identified community needs such as crime, unemployment, health, literacy and numeracy.
The draft Master Plan integrates the Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre and a remodelled indoor aquatics facility in the Community Pavilion interconnected with extensive open parklands, play facilities, walking paths with outdoor fitness stations, cycleway and the opportunity for Community Gardens, along with car parking. In additional, the Master Plan supports co-usage / training associated with sporting fields and a 400m athletics track.
